The game will revolve around players grouping up (although solo play is supported), picking a mission, landing planetside, completing objectives, running for extraction, and then using rewards to make upgrades and take on new, harder missions.A press release on Xbox Wire explains a little of the story: “As the dinosaurs took over our planet, some people made their escape to an orbital station set up by a group called the ERA. Humanity has licked its wounds and now returns to find out more about this unbelievable enemy. This is where The Extinction War begins. Players pick from a roster of four survivors from around the world, a group that will continue to grow after launch.”
As that quote suggests, this is a live service title, and the game is designed to evolve over time. The game will take advantage of Xbox’s Smart Delivery service.
